A Life in Guyana: The later years, 1923-1935

Front Cover
Peepal Tree, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 303 pages
In the second volume of Vincent Roth's Guyana memoirs, Vincent is a mature adult who is very sure of himself and bound to his adopted country. Roth's memoirs, while revealing colonial petty-minded bureaucracy, jumped-up officialdom, and incompetence, nevertheless present a picture of a country that worked, where the mail reached the remotest parts of the interior, but where the obliterating power of nature over human effort had to be constantly resisted.
